Are all your motors spinning equally? Check them by hand with power off and see if they all feel the same freedom of spinning with equal slowdown from the magnets. Nothing should be “sticky” or “crunchy” and when turned slowly by fingers, there should be no spots that feel harder to spin past then another.

all motors are the same i flew it yesterday and clipped my wall ever so soft do you think i would need to change the propella as it has the slightest dent in it i mean like a slightest its so so small i just didn't think that would affect it

Shouldn’t the internal compass compensate any unintentional turning? Even if one motor would indeed be slower than others, the sensors would register incorrect positioning and just compensate line they do with wind

After re-reading your post the first thing I would do is change out that blade. Might not be a big problem but why take a chance of it breaking later on. As suggested do a good calibration as that bump with the wall might have set something out of calibration.

I believe that you can get strange movement if the GPS North and the compass North, allowing for the declination between magnetic and frue North, do not line up. In the past this has caused a "toilet bowl effect" but it can manifest itself in other ways.

It may not be the cause of the problem but at least then it can be discounted.

Was it rotating on its own before that little bump with the wall? Or did that behavior show after? Compass is most likely not the culprit but a good calibration outside in a very open area with no metal around could help. Lastly, consider a lift off and hover just using the app without the controller to eliminate any false yaw signal from the left stick perhaps not being calibrated. The gimbals on there are not exactly pro but they do seem well protected and I’ve yet to experience any issues with the sticks that plague some higher end controllers. That being said, a little dirt in there impeding yaw signal for zero axis center can cause slow spinning in hover in the direction of the side that’s not “seeing” center.

Personally, I don’t like those globe shots most of the time. I rather use them to generate a cropped pano out of them which I can rearrange to get the desired shot. But what looks good are for example big objects which stand out on those globe images. Like a big tower next to your drone which leads to a globe image that looks like a small earth with the tower/object sitting on top

I’m never used them. Neither on my old drone or the Anafi. I know that some swear on them especially for the shutter speed rule (for the Anafi that would be 1/60 shutterspeed if I am correct). Under a normal sunny day you would need to use an ND filter to achieve this otherwise the image would be to bright. I never tried that so far and would recommend getting the hang of your drone and it’s setting before going for filters.

But if anyone has some experience with the theoretical perfect shutterspeed setting: does it really make such a positive difference? Is it really desirable for landscape videos to introduce the „natural blur“ you get with this setting?

As far as I can ascertain the 180 degree shutter rule is more guidance than a hard and fast rule. It states that the shutter speed should be 1/twice the frame rate e.g for 30fps the "ideal" shutter speed should be 1/60 second. Action scenes may need a faster shutter speed and romantic scenes may need a slower one to blur the action. I am thinking about buying some ND filters for my Anafi for my upcoming holiday in Australia where it can be very bright. However I will be taking holiday memories and not commercial movies so the extra time spent sorting out which filter to use may not be worth it. I am sure that my friends and family will not be too critical of my lack of cinematic experience. I also do not use ND filters on my Panasonic Bridge Camera, Olfi action camera or phone and those videos turn out OK in my opinion.
